Downtown Disney Weekend Recap

DEAR GOD my left knee hurts! Come to think of it my right knee hurts too. I did the elliptical yesterday and 20 minutes elliptical today followed by 10 minutes of running/walking on the treadmill. I thought cutting back on the running would help but what can I say? My knees HAAAATE me.

Anyway rant over.

001

After breakfast and a gym workout, Andy and I headed over to Downtown Disney. Before checking into our hotel for the night, we stopped by Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen so I could get my favorite...Chicken Caesar Wrap with parmesan garlic fries.

Um...can you saw holy fries?

002

This wrap is obviously not a "health" food but it is so dang good! Seasoned grilled chicken breast with caesar dressing, parmesan cheese, bacon, tomatoes and romaine lettuce.

003

Andy ordered a pulled pork sandwich with the tastiest potato salad. I HATE mayo-y potato salads but this one? YUM!

004

So I loved my wrap but only half about 1/3 of the fries. (That's with Andy's help!) I hate how huge portions at restaurants are. It drives me insane. And I'll admit there were definitely days in my past where I could finish those fries off. Not anymore though!

005

Still Brennan's has great food. Next time, I might have to try a shrimp po' boy!

006

After Brennan's Andy and I walked around the shops at Downtown Disney to digest. We even managed to find a Minnie and Mickey Christmas "Just Married" ornament for half price. I was pretty stoked! It was actually pretty warm at Disneyland, so we drove to our hotel and checked in. And took a nap.

007

After the nap, I needed an alcoholic beverage. My first of 2010! We walked from our hotel to Disney's Grand Californian Hotel. I love the rustic feel of the lobby.

008

010

And the bar inside the hotel has all sorts of cute touches to it.

015

I usually order a sangria but I was in the mood for something tropical and full of rum!

018

Along with some snacks, it totally hit the spot. Andy ordered a Newcastle. I didn't take a picture.

019

After more walking and window-shopping, Andy and I decided to grab dinner before the show. We headed over to the La Brea Bakery. Where they gave us fresh baked sourdough to start with.

021

And soup in a bread bowl for dinner. I ordered the tomato & red bell pepper.

022

And Andy had clam chowder. Both were delicious without being too filling.

As for the concert. It was an awesome show. Andy and I really wanted to see both Anthony Raneri (of the band Bayside) and Chris Conley (Saves the Day) so it was nice that they both played first. Anthony has such an amazing voice! It's just nice to go to concerts with Andy and relax a little bit.

024

Lunch this afternoon was some cream of broccoli soup from Natural Cafe. (My sister gave us a gift card for Christmas! Thanks Emily!)

025

And a turkey burger with avocado.

026

Andy ordered a Natural Caesar salad with grilled chicken.

Now we're back home. I have to go in to fill out paperwork at my new job tomorrow and I'm kind of stressed out about it. I guess going back to reality is tough. That and starting school January 19th. I will totally miss my free time!

How was your weekend?

I've stayed in the Grand Californian :) This post really makes me want Nat Caf and a caesar wrap. By Petco in MP there is a place called Camille's Sidewalk Cafe that has really good caesar wraps.

I hear you on restaurant portions. It's really sad, but good for you for finding a comfortable stopping point for yourself :)
